The total open control software (OCS) market, including "softlogic" and motion control solutions, will likely increase more than 24% per year through 2006, according to a new study, "Open Control Software Worldwide Outlook," by Dick Slansky, senior analyst, ARC Advisory Group. Though the study found that softlogic revenues remain dominant at the study period's outset, it adds that the motion control market will make significant strides by 2006. "Both automation suppliers and end-users agree that PC-based open control software has been established in industrial automation as a flexible and reliable control solution. Moreover, OCS providers have moved to new business models that include multiple automation solutions, integration, services, and support," says Mr. Slansky.
